About Samantha

Hello, thank you for taking the time to have a read about me..
my name is Sam and my hubbys name is Steve. We are a very active couple in our early 50's. I am an ex pub landlady but now am a at home housewife , so i'm home every day, my hubby is a support worker and does various shifts. we are non smokers and own our home. Our house is most definitely a home and not a show house....
I have had cats and dogs all my life, through the years I was brought up as a child with a Labradoodle ( although back then it was called a mongrel lol ) an Afghan Hound, and a gorgeous big black Labrador. I had my own adorable Jack Russell for 17 yrs before he sadly passed away earlier this year. ( its him in the pics).So now all we have is our 8yr old cat, he is a typical tom and comes and goes as he pleases long as he's fed he's happy.
We love the outdoors, the Hoe and the Moors being 2 of our fav places, we have a large enclosed back garden, and a large park close by.
My daughter and granddaughter (5yr) also have a pony, so have lots and lots of field space which the dogs really love.
Please feel free to ask any questions, kind regards sam xx

    My 2 Jack Russells are 10 yrs old, one of them is totally deaf and has some anxiety issues because of that. They have never been left with anyone other than family or stayed in another house so it was a big deal to consider what to do when necessity meant leaving them somewhere for a week over the New year. After finding DogBuddy and Samantha and Steve (her husband) I was happy to book and it couldn't have been a better decision. Samantha certainly takes the job of sitter seriously and does everything possible to help both dogs and owners. I had lots of 'pupdates' with photos which showed my dogs relaxed and having fun which definitely eased my mind. Even when we did encounter a few difficulties during the stay Samantha remained positive and everything was ok. When I finally returned to collect the dogs I felt that they were as happy with Samantha and Steve as they were with me and I would have no hesitation booking with her again or recommending them (I have to include Steve in that as he was so good with the dogs too) to anyone else looking for a true 'home from home' stay for their pets.

    Samantha and her husband Steve were both absolutely amazing. They looked after my little Ruby, 1 year old, from the 27th-30th December. They have a beautiful home with a huge enclosed back garden which Ruby just adored playing in. During that time, due to a situation with a previous sitter who overfed Ruby, she was very ill, with V&D. Samantha was amazing throughout it all, she rang me as soon as Ruby was ill, she took care of her, met me at the vets and took pictures so the vet could see what she had brought up, she stayed at the vets with me providing any info she could and helping in any way she could. Ruby was then sent back to her with strict instructions to only eat scrambled eggs, and despite the fact that Samantha had a personal emergency of her own, her and Steve followed my instructions to the letter and cared for Ruby throughout the night. I can not thank them enough for what they did for me and how they cared for Ruby. They were both so kind. I will definitely be using her services again, hopefully next time with a much healthier Ruby! She even offered to come all the way to elberton to pick me up to go to the vets in stoke if I couldn't get there. Your pup will definitely be in safe hands with Samantha, god forbid they were to ever have an emergency like my pup did (again, it was a previous issue not to do with Samantha), she was absolutely amazing. Really Samantha, I cannot thank you enough for restoring my faith in DogBuddy and dog sitters after the bad experience I had before coming to you, and for caring for my Ruby as if she were your own :)
